New Poll Finds 57% of Alaska Voters Support Initiative to Legalize Cannabis
Less than a month before Alaska voters decide the fate of Ballot Measure 2, an initiative to legalize recreational cannabis, a new Ivan Moore Research poll has found that a majority is in support of the initiative.
According to the poll, 57.2% of Alaska voters support the initiative to legalize cannabis, with just 38.7% opposed.
The poll asked the question directly as it will appear on ballots.
Under Ballot Measure 2, those 21 and older would be allowed to cultivate up to 6 cannabis plants, in addition to possessing and purchasing up to an ounce. State-licensed cannabis retail outlets would be authorized and regulated by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board.
The proposal is up for vote on November 4th.
